Laine Brew Co has worked with independent London pizzeria Zia Lucia to develop a new range of beers. These will be available when the restaurant opens a new branch on 11th December.
Having first opened in Islington in 2016, Zia Lucia has survived two lockdowns by refining its delivery service, and is now focusing on positive times ahead with the launch of its fifth site, in the heart of Wandsworth.
To celebrate the launch, founders and friends Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo have teamed up with Brighton-based Laine Brew Co to create a range of craft beers designed to complement different pizza and pasta doughs.
The inaugural beer of the new brand, named Birra Cabriolè, will be an unfiltered lager (4.6% ABV) with a refreshing, crisp taste, which pairs perfectly with traditional Italian food.
Birra Cabriolè is inspired by Claudio and Gianluca’s love of Southern Italy’s coastline. After bringing their vision to the brew masters at Laine, they developed a recipe that is refreshing, but earthy, combining on one hand great British craftsmanship, and on the other, the genuine taste of Italian unfiltered lager.
Birra Cabriole will be available in bottles throughout all Zia Lucia and Berto Pasta restaurants for £5 per bottle, and on tap and bottle in Laine Brew Co pubs.
Having started with an unfiltered brew, the next beers will include a black lager and gluten-free option, to pair with the doughs in the restaurants, making the drinks just as much a part of the eating experience.
With a dedicated e-commerce site also launching in December, there will be the chance for customers to do the same when they prepare their own pasta and pizza at home.
